COVID-19 and Beyond (updated January 2021)

Please note that due to the continued pandemic, our office is operating on reduced hours but we are here for you on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between the hours of 9am to 1pm. 

The coronavirus pandemic continues to disrupt travel and scuba diving operations around the world in a way never seen before, but we remain hopeful that a successful launch of vaccines will soon see the world reopen to travellers. Until then, we will continue to work closely with our trusted suppliers and ground agents around the world to stay up-to-date with new developments and to keep our clients as informed as possible. As the impact of the virus evolves in each country, we are seeing local regulations adapt to ensure travellers can be welcomed back as soon as is safely possible.

It is still not clear how the global situation will develop or what is around each corner, but we are adapting accordingly to a new way of travel. Throughout the coronavirus outbreak our priority has always been to ensure the safety of our customers, and we are able to do this by contacting all our valued suppliers to ensure measures are being put in place for the safety and peace of mind of both our customers and the local staff.

Since the lockdown began in March last year, we have been busy looking after customers with holidays that have been affected and have rescheduled many trips. Times continue to be uncertain but we are doing out very best to keep our customers informed as local and global regulations change. We would like to thank you all for your patience and support while we wait for the information and answers we need. We realise this uncertainty can be very frustrating, so please do feel free to email us at and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can with the latest developments for your trip.

We are still here for you and Great Escapes Diving Holidays will weather this storm and remain strong and resilient and will continue to be a tour operator you can trust. We are available to make bookings for the future and pride ourselves on being able to offer a bespoke and personal approach, even during this challenging time. We know that travel will be restored – albeit in a newer form – and when it does we are excited and ready to tailor and plan your next adventure.
